Texting while driving has led to 1.6 million car crashes in the United States each year. This epidemic is the cause of 1 out of every 4 car accidents. These statistics may be off the charts due to Florida previously handling texting and driving as a secondary law. This ban requires police to pull over any driver who is using their phone while driving, as opposed to it only having been a secondary law in the past- not allowing police to pull you over for texting and driving alone.
